Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Wherever fearless suffragist Arabella Beckett goes, trouble follows, because in 1880 “proper” ladies are not supposed to fight for the vote or carry a pistol. Arabella would rather protect herself than rely on a man, thank you very much. But when she ends up in a small-town jail with Miss James, a young woman she’s saved from kidnapping and prostitution, she has no choice but to allow herself and her new friend to be sprung by Theodore Wilder, a famous private eye sent by her family. Wilder is tall, strong, handsome, intelligent, and the most pig-headed chauvinist Arabella has ever met. In all of his travels, Theodore has never come across a woman like Arabella. He’s both annoyed and fascinated by her self-sufficient manner. In fact, if she were a man, he’d admire her quick wit and heroic endeavors. But she’s most definitely a woman, and she doesn’t know her place, something he intends to remedy. This madcap battle of the sexes is the sequel to Turano’s hilarious A Change of Fortune (2012), and it is perfect for any reader who enjoys stories bubbling with humor. --Shelley Mosley --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Miss Arabella Beckett, defender of the down-trodden women of America, is returning from her travels in support of the women's suffrage movement when she makes a simple offer of assistance to a young woman in need. But things go sadly awry, and both ladies soon find themselves in dire need of rescue. Arabella, always loath to admit she needs help, is particularly reluctant to receive assistance from the arrogant, narrow-minded knight in shining armor who shows up just in time.

Private investigator extraordinaire Mr. Theodore Wilder is on an assignment that began as a favor to his good friend Hamilton Beckett, but swiftly evolved into a merry chase across the country. He is already in a less than pleasant mood, and when Hamilton's sister turns out to have radical ideas and a fiercely independent streak, he's at his wit's end.

Much to their chagrin, Theodore and Arabella's paths continue to cross when they return home to New York, but the most unusual feelings beginning to grow between them certainly can't be anything serious. When the trouble Arabella accidentally stirred up in her travels follows her home and threatens her very life, the unlikely couple must face the possibility that they might have landed in the most peculiar circumstance of all: love.

This madcap battle of the sexes is the sequel to Turano's hilarious A Change of Fortune (2012), and it is perfect for any reader who enjoys stories bubbling with humor.
-- Booklist [Starred Review]

"Turano's second novel is a laugh-out-loud, charming historical romance with witty, sweet characters. Her amazing stories are believable and will remain in the hearts of readers long after the end of the book." --RT Book Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.
